Butthole Surfers - Hey by MegaLamka







Butthole Surfers is the debut studio EP by American punk band Butthole Surfers, released in July 1983. It is also known as Brown Reason to Live and Pee Pee the Sailor (see "Title controversy"). All songs were written and produced by the Butthole Surfers. The album was originally released on Alternative Tentacles. Butthole Surfers and 1984's Live PCPPEP were reissued as the Butthole Surfers/Live PCPPEP CD on Latino Buggerveil in 2003. The 12-inch vinyl version is still available from Alternative Tentacles, and is listed as Brown Reason to Live. The center label on Butthole Surfers' vinyl printings invites listeners to erroneously play the record at "69 RPM," a joke referencing the famous sex position. The album's back cover features a mildly distorted image of famed Mexican luchador Santo. 1."The Shah Sleeps in Lee Harvey's Grave" - 2:09 2."Hey" - 2:06 3."Something" - 4:36 4."Bar-B-Q Pope" - 3:36 5."Wichita Cathedral" - 2:22 6."Suicide" - 1:24 7."The Revenge of Anus Presley" - 2:25
